The Employment Committee (EMCO) is to meet in Stockholm on 2728 October to discuss current European employment issues.
The main function of EMCO is to carry out preparatory work for the EPSCO Council in the area of employment. It also has an advisory role to EPSCO. Due to the priorities of the Swedish Presidency, the issues for discussion by EMCO will include how the Member States can get more people into the labour market.
EMCO plays an important part in producing the European Employment Strategy, which is now an integral part of the Lisbon Strategy.
